tasks to complete R1A fall 2020 - 6 unit class -- this is a copy of the tasks to complete R1A fall 2020. I created the page in bCourses, and continue to develop it through the semester. Students would copy it from bCourses into a spreadsheet, like the one that is linked in this email. I would check with them in consultations through the semester to make sure they were keeping up-to-date. At the end of the semester there was an assignment spot to hand in their completed versions.

Through the semester students fill out their own version of the progressing table below. As they do so they will notice how much writing they have done this semester, and how varied it was. This is at the heart of what improves your writing, your directed practice.

Assignments are somewhat based on needs I see popping up while I read your drafts, meet with you, and receive your questions. Because of this flexibility, I keep adding to this list as the semester goes along. I have a general idea of what we will do, but your needs direct much of the class. So keep checking in, here to get updates on assignments, and with me to express your questions.

I suggest you keep current in your completing your version of this form: it makes things easier for own organization, particularly at the end of semester. You can copy this chart to a word or excel document fill it out. Many students find that a google doc or google sheet is an easy way to chart your progress.

"Your completion date" is the place to note a reason if something is late, particularly if we have communicated about it. It is a place for you to communicate with me. A short video is about completion dates is here (Links to an external site.).
